3DEO, Inc., a metal Additive Manufacturing technology company based in Los Angeles, California, USA, received a Design Excellence Award for its metal additively manufactured production component, an anchor link, in the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF)’s 2020 PM Design Excellence Awards. The company’s process combines binder-based metal Additive Manufacturing with green-state milling.
The competition recognises distinguished examples of the efforts made in metal Additive Manufacturing to advance new technologies, designs, and commercial success.
According to 3DEO, the company is gaining high-volume, low-cost parts orders versus traditional manufacturing techniques such as CNC machining and Metal Injection Moulding. The company explained that is breaking new ground in metal AM due to its differentiated technology and business model; rather than selling AM machines, the company sells parts and offers customers a ‘one-stop-shop’ for production-quality metal components.
